 New goldie. need help!!

We received a golden for xmas and we are now learning a lot more about them. My mother did not know what type of gecko she gave us, so i had to do a lot of research to determine the kind and environment needed for our (girl??) We are just looking to get some info from people who have them and can steer us in the right direction of: new tank, what size, stuff to put in, how is it with 2 goldens, etc... If any of you could share some of your knowledge, I would LOVE to hear it!! Thanks

Check out one of the many caresheets...
But basics are 1- 20gal tank for each gecko, substrate, undertank heater on one side, heat lamp above on same side, warm side hide, cool side hide, artificial or real plants, branches/vines etc.... crickets and mealworms for food.
check out the care sheets.

The problem is that typically, goldens are very territorial... If you have two females it may be ok to try out, but you have to watch them for stress. If they get too stressed, if they fight, or if one is eating and one is getting thinner you will need to seperate them.
Make sure you have a warm and a cool moist hide. Lots of vines/branches to climb on as they are not terrestrial.
